Since this the Jconcepts Thread, I thought I would suggest a few bodies for the Traxxas Rally.
Chevy Sonic (couldn't get a photo of the "real" thing so I used this)
Ford Fiesta
Dodge Dart

That is all

While I respect your enthusiasm, you can already get pretty much all of those in 1oth scale and/or 8th scale. Like I said, I couldn't get a picture of the real Moro Racing Sonic rally car so I used that one.

I'm not sure what the weight difference is, but durability/function was our major priority. Sorry, but we are not into personal customization... Seriously though, we don't make most of those items and no plans at the moment.

No yellow cups do to type of material used.

It's been discussed and might be a future product, but nothing new in the short term future.

It's been discussed, but never makes the priority list It would have to be a generic brand or something we already have licensing for (Ford, Chevy, Nissan), so it does limit our options.

So pretty much the Chevy/Ford licensing is for some reason not allowing for licensed Sonic and/or Fiesta bodies? (nevermind the Dart, I can see why you might have problems there.) That's a bummer. At the very least, how about a high performance (Read: Durability) body that can be passed off as one with some custom decals and a cool paintjob. Either way, I hope you eventually get clearance for those, They would rock!

EDIT: I would love to see you all get creative with Nissan

Default New Ballcups

the 4 shorty ball cups included, are they for servo to bell crank link ? If so they are way to long for my B4, do they need to be cut down or are they for a different purpose ?

Just got around to painting the jconcepts body I got a few weeks ago, and I went to peel off the window masks, and was met with a sticky, residue-y mess. Not happy, the body is pretty messed up.

I love your stuff JC, but try window masks like prolines. Till then, I'll be using proline.

I've been using paint masks for over a decade and a couple bodies ago I used one that left an awful mess like you had. And what a pain to get the glue residue off and not mess up the paint that I had put down already.
I think that mask had sat on amains shelves for way too long or something and the same thing was probably your issue as well.
I have never had an issue with jconcepts or prolines window masks. I think you got some old stock.

Rubbing alcohol will take it right off though and the windows are an easy area to work on.

First off, the Clash looks like tons of fun, wish I was there and what a great event. Quick question, is there a TLR 3.0e body from jconcepts in the works?

We are open with any of the Ford, Chevy, and Nissan vehicles. Just a matter of deciding if the project has a big enough demand.

They are for the swaybar kit (we offer for the AE vehicles).

Sorry to hear that you had some issues, but I deal with a lot of painters and they always tell us we have the "BEST" window mask. I also work with this mask on a weekly basis and never experienced this issue. Sounds like something out of the ordinary happened; left the mask on for a few weeks or something of that nature. May just got some bad material. Contacting us directly and maybe we can help info@jconcepts.net

It's in discussion.

The Clash was awesome and we had a great time! Yes, we are working on the 3.0e body .

We do have several RC10 Classic items in the works, but we will have to see when the car is released regarding the wheels, etc...
